One of the faces of the NHL will take the ice on Wednesday night for Game 1 of his third Stanley Cup Final appearance with two wins under his belt already.
For Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews, this is nothing new. He's been there and he has conquered. In a frantic comeback effort to force overtime in Game 5 of the Western Conference Final and again in Game 7, Toews scored two goals to lead his team.
Chicago lost Game 5 with Toews on the ice. They rallied to take Game 6 and, behind Toews, claimed Game 7.
He is arguably the best captain in the NHL today. But before he turned into a household name, he was a star at North Dakota, playing for Dave Hakstol.
